The Morrisburg team’s gross score of 896 was enough to put them in third place at this year’s Ladies Valley League tournament held at Morrisburg Golf Club, Sunday, August 19.
Prescott, the 2011 defending champions, came in, in second place with a gross of 877, while first place finishers, Summerheights, took home the honours with 873.
Cedar Glen ended up with a gross of 914, while Iroquois finished with 915.
The first tee off of the day was at 9 a.m. the last at 12:30 p.m., with final players on the course turning in their score cards by 5:30, just in time for awards and a banquet. Morrisburg player Stephenie Cochrane described it as a “good day”: a cloud burst in early afternoon only slowed the action briefly.
The Ladies Valley League has been in existence for over 40 years. Players this year ranged in age from 16 to Morrisburg’s Lillian Noon, 92, who said she’d been taking part now for about 20 years “and I still love it. Actually, I’m aiming for a hole in one before I’m 100.”
